    Ive had this notebook for 1 year. Never had an issue till now. I just turned it on, didn't let it finish loading and had to power off to catch a train. So I shut it down as it was barely starting to load with apple logo on screen.

    Same day at work, I powered it on, but following messages appears. It loops back off, then cycles on again over & over.

    Anyone know what could have went wrong?

    yeah. took it into local apple store. they tried to diagnose it. they said I needed to leave it so they can figure out whats wrong. Luckily for me, it was on last day of warranty :)

    im still new to mac my self but i am an IT tech for pc's and in pc world u could have damaged the master boot record and that tells the computer where to look on the hard drive to load the os. so macs equivalent to this would be first thing id check if i got an error like that on a pc with same description of how it happened. its highly unlikely u damaged the board by turning it off thats just silly lol. now it could have been its time to die but still thats just highly unlikely. judging by what your pictures show id say thats what looks to have happened by shutting it down during boot. even this is a rare out come to shutting it down mid boot but still first thing id check.
